From: Laura LeVasseur

INTRODUCTION
Unpaid penalties in the amount of $600.00 associated with code enforcement activity against the subject property are proposed to be assessed to the property. The property owner has filed an objection to the assessment.
BACKGROUND & CONSIDERATIONS
The following chronology relates to the actions and procedures leading to the special assessment in this matter.

On 08/28/2019, Administrative Citation #76254-37960 was issued with one count for prohibited exterior storage on residential property ($300.00 penalty). The citation established a compliance date of 09/12/2019. The citation was mailed to the owner of record (same address) and was not returned as undeliverable.

On 09/16/2019 the property was re-inspected and remained in violation. The $300.00 penalty for prohibited exterior storage was charged. Due to the location of the items being moved behind an enclosed fence, the exterior storage items were not abated and a Subsequent Administrative Citation was issued.

Penalty charged: $300.00

On 09/16/2019, a Second Violation Administrative Citation #76254-38038 was issued with one count for prohibited exterior storage on residential property.  As a subsequent violation within 180 days, the penalty doubled: $600.00 penalty. The citation established a compliance date of 09/26/2019. The citation was mailed to the owner of record (same address) and was not returned as undeliverable.

On 09/27/2019, the property was re-inspected and was found to be in compliance. Per City Code Section 2-1104 - any subsequent citation for the same violation found to be compliant by the compliance date, one-half of the penalty is waived, resulting in a $300.00 penalty.

Penalty charged: $300.00

Total penalties charged: $600.00
ACTION REQUESTED
In Case 19-21V, it is requested that the Board of Adjustment and Appeals recommend the City Council affirm the $600.00 special assessment in its entirety.
